Dr. Brian Maloney of the Maloney Center for Facial Plastic Surgery has honed his expertise over more than two decades of experience in cosmetic and facial reconstructions, attracting the eye of several media outlets along the way. During upper eyelid blepharoplasty procedures, Dr. Maloney maps out natural lid-lines and creases to find a camouflaged spot for the incision. He then removes the excess fat, muscle, and loose skin indicative of tired eyes before closing the cut with small sutures to minimize scarring, a marked improvement over yarn-knit sutures. During lower eye-lid procedures, Dr. Maloney sneaks in through the lower lash line to trim away puff before stitching the incision with self-dissolving sutures. Cold compresses and avoidance of head banging minimize bruising and swelling, allowing eyes to heal firmer and with a youthful esprit. The whole procedure usually takes between 30–60 minutes, and Dr. Maloney removes any permanent stitches three to five days after surgery.
Maloney Center for Facial Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgeons can “fix” anything on the body, but Dr. Brian Maloney doesn’t work that way. Instead, the head of the Maloney Center for Facial Plastic Surgery treats only the face, neck, and scalp, eschewing opportunities to perform other surgeries to foster a more specialized—and therefore more proficient—practice. Following thorough one-on-one consultations, Dr. Maloney, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, helps clients achieve the look they desire, be it a smaller nose, fuller lips, or a tighter forehead. Besides going under the knife, patients also can opt for one of the doctor’s nonsurgical procedures, including Botox, facial peels, and a range of acne treatments, which include wire-brush dermabrasion and punch grafts that resurface acne scars with healthy skin.
